PhD+ Workshop – Slide Design Workshop

November 9, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm  |  Virtual and In Person


Have you ever inflicted a boring slide presentation on an audience? Learn tips and techniques for using slides the way they should be used, as visual aids to your spoken-word presentation. Prior to attending this workshop, review this slide design page, including viewing the video by Sonya.

Sonya Newlyn received her M.A. in English literature from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and her B.A. in English literature from Emory University, where she also minored in anthropology. In addition to organizing professional development classes, workshops, panels, and the two certificate programs, she also organizes Grad Slam, the Graduate Symposium, and the Distinguished Graduate Student Alumni Award Ceremony.

Register by November 1st for in-person attendance in Graduate Student Commons, Room 204. The event will also be accessible virtually via Zoom. Complimentary vegan lunch provided to in-person attendees.


This workshop is presented by the Division of Graduate Studies and co-sponsored by The Humanities Institute as part of our 2022-2023 PhD+ series. The Division of Graduate Studies’ workshops are for current UC Santa Cruz graduate students and postdoctoral scholars and require an active UC Santa Cruz email address.
